Whatever you build your website with, if you include anything that moves, that is what will grab and hold your visitor’s attention. So it had better be really essential to what you want your visitors to know. If it’s not, ditch it – keep it simple and your message very clear and immediate.
I think I’ll leave this in place for the next couple of weeks, though – just to help get the message across 😉
And thanks to Aen Tan for the plugin and to Sean Duran for the tweak that means you only see this on the home page!
